Deep green is definitely the colour of next season. Whether it's a backlash from the pastels and neon of Spring/Summer or just a reaction to the need for something other than black, it's definitely something to be embraced. There's a shade of green for every hair colour, and it really breaks up the overwhelming temptation to go for neutral accessories in tan and beige by being introduced as a Mulberry handbag or a Dorothy Perkins cocktail ring.

Other colours that'll be everywhere when we embrace Autumn/Winter in the shops?

  • Peacock blue. Think Holbein paintings (he used the colour heavily as a backdrop in his portraiture) and antique vases.
  • Burgundy with orange and vermillion. You don't have to stamp through leaves to get this look. It bypasses the Christmassy nature of pillarbox red, keeping Winter feeling warm but modern.
  • Mustard - continuing from Spring/Summer, often teamed with dark purple or black. Replace the lemon yellow with some of this on your nails, and go for mustard leather gloves.
I know it's still summer and it's boiling outside, but I can't wait to get back into knitwear and high leg boots with a few of these colours in the back of my mind.


  1. Loving how emerald is so in this season. I think its a gorgeous colour.

    I also like other jewel tones such as sapphire and garnet - I think they will be popular too.


  2. I completely agree, Ashleigh - the jewel colours are going to be massive and they will look great. Can't wait to see them all in the shops!

  3. I really appreciate you for this wonderful post. Because of this the pop displays can improve the sales of a product as they are abe in order to influence deciding of the client right there and then.
